LISTEN: Escape From Stalag Luft III

[Permalink]

Is there a transcript?

My grandfather was in that camp. He was a B-24 pilot, shot down over Hungary I believe.
He arrived shortly after “The Great Escape” was attempted, and boy does he have good stories.

Has he written any of them down? Could you? Or could you record him?

I wanted one as well :smile:

Next best thing, found this site with details of the escape, very interesting.

I’m not sure if he has written his stories, and I haven’t recorded them (wish I could).
I know he kept a diary while in the camp and I think he still has it or he might have donated it to a little POW museum in NY he was working with.
